Another Round for the Mystery Image Swap!

I've been waiting for January 18th for a long time.  Why?  Because on January 18th the friends in the Mystery Image Swap on Split Coast can reveal their latest creation - and I actually had mine done and postal a few weeks ago (shocking, I know!)

Jeanette (aka Forest Ranger on SCS) was our swap hostess this round, and that means that a couple of months ago she chose our images, stamped them all.  We receive the Mystery Image with our swap returns from the previous round.  Jeanette gave us an image of a pizza box, some pizza slices and a sentiment from a company called TooMuchFun Rubber Stamps.  And it was fun!

Here's what I came up with:

It's doesn't show up well in the photo, but the yellow and brown pieces of CS have been embossed with a diamond embossing plate so there is some texture there.  Here's a closer view:

















































And a wee bit of perking up the inside:

The red patterned paper was left over from a kit from last summer, it was a backyard barbecue theme, but I thought that it also looked like a tablecloth one might find in a pizza parlor.  The image is colored with Spectrum Noir markers and the little heart gem is from my stash (probably from Michael's).

Thanks for a fun image and being such a fun hostess, Jeanette!  I can hardly wait to see what the next round will bring!

I thought the red and white paper looked like a tablecloth and was going to use it too, but ended up in a totally different direction ☺

I love it!!
